Great value, service, location A review of Bar Harbor Grand Hotel
My girlfriend and I stayed at the Bar Harbor Grand in May of 2005. We purchased a very reasonable package deal that included two nights, a two-hour schooner cruise of the harbor, and an excellent dinner at the Bar Harbor Inn's Reading Room.
Our king bedroom was a decent size and looked brand new, with a newer television, plenty of lights and respectable furniture. The room was spotless upon entry and throughout our stay. Beds and pillows were clean and comfortable. Free parking is available, as well as DVD players, DVD rentals (not free), and a heated outdoor pool, though we only took advantage of the parking.
The hotel is in an excellent location, about a ten minute walk from downtown and a ten minute drive from Acadia National Park. For these reasons, I highly recommend the Bar Harbor Grand and think it would be an excellent choice for both families and couples.
